Post "Star Wars," Peter lived quietly in Northern England for 14 years, then found himself in high demand for personal appearances. The London-born actor moved to Texas and became a U.S. citizen. Peter loves spending times with fans and even consulted with Lucasfilm animators and artists in 2011 to help them design Chewbacca's character for the animated "Clone Wars" series. Now, 68-year-old Peter raises goats, chickens, and other animals with his wife. In addition to establishing the charitable Peter Mayhew Foundation, he wrote two children's books: "Growing Up Giant" and "My Favorite Giant."
